Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Will be interesting to see if Saville is involved in the Millwall squad today

 

I think he’s down as having a knock. Could be crap but we won’t know till fri I guess

 

Apparently came off at half time with concussion midweek.

He’s not guardiola but to some I don’t think no matter what he does he will ever be good enough

 

He won't because even if he carried on for another 4 seasons and got us promoted and kept us up, someone would find a way of throwing him under a bus and no doubt would be attempting to do that a lot along that kind of journey.

 

By all means if he doesn't deliver another point on the table then start asking questions, we all will. But it's when someone is sat waiting to say 'I told you so' until he slips up because no matter what they say, they've got a bloody agenda against what he is and what he represents... it's just a bit daft in my opinion. To the point where they don't even think he's playing the same kind of football he always has just because it's been successful so far! Hah!

We’ve all seen it before with managers that come in and have managed or played for a rival before. They are almost certain to fail. Regardless of their record supporters are just waiting for that three match losing run to go for the jugular

Nixon says he has tales on Boro that are coming out tomorrow, but isn't answering questions till then.

This is why I have a dislike for the man. He has stumbled on a winning formula. And yet he wants to break away from it to play his hoof ball.

 

Last season he found a gem that doesn't play his system but produced better results than he is used to in bamford. But rather than go with it he throw a it out of the window as quick as he can. This season he finds that winning formula, again fairly fortunately by having to bring on youth from the bench when getting battered by a crap millwall team and then throws it away as soon as he can.

 

Guessing wing will play tiny cameos from now on and we will play with no attack minded midfielders.

 

I've given him his due for what I though was a bit of courage. However I guess a leopard never changes his spots.

 

Still think we're getting relegated Tudders?

The phrase “tales” that he uses, sounds a bit gossipy, I can’t see how that would be very helpful.

Probably just the wrong phrase. Pulis himself said one or two were close, I imagine Nixon has the names.

I think he's doing okay, but I'm not sure what any of this has to do with transfers or loans?

 

Err because he's our manager, and if he talks about wanting to bring in 2 or 3 more players, it's totally relevant to transfers.

Yep agree with Billy on this, we all know that things are "happening" we hope so it seems to me that Nixon is hoping for an exclusive as he possibly is aware of whom we are going for

Bolasie confirmed to Villa.

 

Good news, didn't want him messing up our squad anyway, not a Boro type of player.

May be that the tales alluded to are the thing TP said SG might want to talk about.

I still think we'll finish mid table, which is actually what I said, although I do have a bet on us going down.

 

I was watching the match and completely disagree that we played long balls. For the most part we passed the ball well and I have given pulis credit for this.

 

Pulis, throughout his career has player with wingers, a big man up front and has played route 1 football. That's fairly indisputable. My criticism of him was based on a post that said he doesn't want to play the system we are currently playing (which I am quite happy watching as it is fairly entertaining at the same time as getting results) and wants to revert back to his default setting, which I absolutely don't want.

 

To this end I hope we don't sign any wingers. If he had them he would be playing his default system and would presumably lead to hoof ball (not what is being played now). The fact that he can't means he has been forced into (stumbled upon) a system that is entertaining and winning.

 

I believe this articulates my thoughts quite well (not the wording of an imbecile - with correct spelling).

 

If everyone wants him to go back to the way he normally plays then that's fine, I don't moan at the fact you like that style. Please don't moan at the fact that I don't like that style. If you don't like my opinion feel free to ignore it.

    • I've noticed a lot of online users have signed on this week, so for you this is the history of Magic Lamp.   Little of the history of Magic Lamp has ever been published, but after helping Huddersfield to their only FA Cup win in 1922 Magic lamp disappeared for nearly forty years resurfacing in the mid sixties, found in an attic of a pawn dealer in Dagenham by a schoolboy friend of Alf Ramsey. After a bit of research he found that this indeed was the Lamp that helped Huddersfield  win the FA Cup and as a bit of joke passed the lamp onto Alf for good luck with The World Cup about to start.   Of course England went on to win, however, what wasn't known was that there was a dressing room ritual with the Magic Lamp never before published that will astound the public. In some recently discovered papers, an unpublished interview with Alf Ramsey penned by Cassandra of the Daily Mirror, which were overlooked upon his premature death in 1967, that only now can the contents be revealed.   Cassandra writes, Jimmy Greaves tipped me off about this strange ritual, intrigued I sought out Alf and he granted me an interview at his modest Ipswich bungalow and said it all started off as a bit of a joke, but it was really to take the pressure off the team and footballers being a superstitious mix embraced it. By the time we got to the Argentina match the players were starting to believe in it. Greaves was injured and refused to rub Magic lamp, I had a decision to make and brought in Hurst to the fold. Magic Lamp came to the fore that day causing Rattin to speak incomprehensible nonsense to the referee and got himself sent off, them Geoff scored a marvellous goal. By the time the final came Greavsie was fit, the press were clamouring for his return and I had a decision to make. I said to Jimmy are you a believer and he replied no and then picked up the lamp and hurled it at the dressing room wall, shouting I'm the star of this fecking team not some Magic Lamp. By good fortune Gordon (Banks) was stood at the wall talking to George Cohen and he instinctively caught Magic Lamp saving irreparable damage So my mind was made up, an unchanged team and the rest is history. As the full time time whistle blew Magic Lamp said to me, you've already won it once, tell them to go out and win it again.   There was great celebrating in the dressing room afterwards and the players said the only thing better than drinking champagne out of The World Cup, was sipping it from the delicate lips of Magic Lamp.   Alf said he wanted to take Magic Lamp to Mexico. Magic Lamp declined the offer saying he needed at least another forty year rest before exerting himself again.   Cassandra. Thank you Alf. The nation indeed owes a debt of gratitude to Magic Lamp...                                              
    • We didn’t even talk to Viduka about a new contract until it was too late. If it’s happened to Downing and Schwarzer, it probably happened to Viduka as well.
    • Wonder if Assombalonga plays this as he has a epic record against Birmingham. Also they is doubt about Watmore starting after today comments from Warnock about him suffering Covid the worst. Everything in the form book points to a easy Boro home win but this is football and we could have a typical Boro moment of Clayton or Friend scoring a hatrick 😂

    • The good thing is that Arthur (the true GOH) came from Whitby 🙂
